It’s okay

It’s okay

1️⃣ Its okay to be proud of yourself and your body. It doesn’t make you conceited or arrogant for appreciating your body and investing love and time into it. You shouldn’t feel bad for making time for yourself to achieve goals or peace of mind, unless it is completely harming your family more than doing it good.

2️⃣ it’s okay if your body looks different. It is always going to look different. It will never look the same and you will never be the same as someone else. That’s the beauty of our bodies, we all have different weaknesses and strengths and you can’t spend your time wishing you had someone else’s strengths and ignore your own or worse…never taking the time to find out WHAT those strengths are simply because you’re distracted by others’.

3️⃣ it’s okay to not be happy. It’s alright to have bad days, it’s okay to not feel like you want to smile and pretend everything is perfect that day…but it’s not okay to stay that way. We can’t always be in a good mood. Sometimes we feel drained and depleted and need rest and those days don’t look “happy.” If something is going on in your life, it’s alright to speak up and confide in someone…but don’t confide in EVERYONE. Because not everyone will appreciate your transparency and not everyone will respect your privacy. Take your “rest” days, take a break from smiling at every single person just so you don’t make them feel uncomfortable, take a break from doing everything that’s “expected” of you when you feel like you’re on the verge of a meltdown. Listen to your body, take some time, cry, sleep, read, stare at the sky…do whatever your mind and heart need and come back to your responsibilities with a new perspective and the ability to smile, be happy and actually mean it.

4️⃣ and lastly it’s okay to not be on point with your nutrition. There’s going to be different seasons of your life. You might have to focus on nutrition for some type of competition, or maybe you’re BREASTFEEDING or trying to correct an autoimmune disease with your food…whatever it may be. Your food doesn’t define your worth. Some of us might feel worse than others when you ate something you weren’t supposed to or started eating really badly for a week so then you just decide to give up on whatever you were trying to achieve. It doesn’t need to be this way. Your food is a means to an end. You have the power to decide how you use that food and how it affects your perspective on your life. You’re human, mistakes and slip ups are inevitable. How we move past those mistakes and slip ups and changing our mindset so we stop thinking about them as MISTAKES…that’s when you give yourself the power to not let food control your life.

Those “mistakes” do not mean you need to give up on the road you were on. You are still on that same trip, you just went on a little detour. All we need to do is adjust and get back on the road. No biggie. Mindset is literally e v e r y t h i n g
